Thank you for your faithfulness in helping feed our hungry neighbors! 
Children's Pew Bibles 
   
AUMC Children's Ministry has plans to place Children's Bibles in the pews throughout the Sanctuary.  The cost for each Bible is $20. We believe that cultivating a love for the Bible in our children is important.  If you think it's important, too, and would like to be a part of it, you can sponsor one or several of these Bibles.  Visit the Connection Center to make your donation.

On the Go Devo

     

    Sometimes life keeps you away from church on Sunday, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out.  Our weekly ON THE GO DEVO keeps you talking about what your church family is talking about, even if you can't be here.  You can subscribe to have the DEVO delivered to your mobile device each week by texting ONTHEGO to 68398.

     

     

Are you taking advantage of electronic giving?
When we join the church, we pledge to support the life and ministry of the church with our financial gifts. That can get complicated on those weeks when we can't be here as the offering plate comes around. But through electronic giving, you remain faithful to your membership vows, even on those weeks when life takes you elsewhere. It's easy. It's safe. And it benefits both you and your church family. Setting it up is easy and only takes a few minutes. Contact Shari Birchell at sharibirchell@aledoumc.org to set up an automatic transfer from your checking account. Or go to aledoumc.org/give to use your credit or debit card.
